The Los Angeles City Council has approved the Exposition Corridor Transit Neighborhood Plan, which will allow the development of taller, mixed-use buildings within a half-mile radius around five train stations and aims to boost transit ridership, reduce dependency on cars and create vibrant neighborhoods. The plan rezones 256 acres of land, mostly from industrial and light manufacturing uses, to residential and office space. It also alters several single-family zones to allow “neighborhood-scale mixed-use development that creates ground-floor commercial activity” with the “capacity for multifamily housing.” The plan estimates that between 4,400 and 6,000 new housing units and between 9,400 and 14,300 new jobs could be added across the 256 acres by 2035.
